Michel has passion for Quebec City with great stories as we walked through lower and upper cities. He maintains a pace that remains comfortable while explaining the feelings of French Canadians dealing with British and the invading Continental Army of the American Revolution. He makes the city real and has first hand knowledge of all the key historic and cultural sites. He’s the best!

What an outstanding history tour of upper and lower Quebec City. Michel has so much relevant and interesting information to share, complete with illustrative materials and maps to keep us oriented, and easily shaped the tour to our interests. The walking route was completely comfortable for moderate activity, and we enjoyed every minute and some of his special access points as a local. We would recommend him AND call him again for another tour full of amazing historical anecdotes and interesting commentary.

Michel, the owner of Tours Levi’s, was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour tour, delving into so much French/British/American history. We walked the upper and lower old town, stopping often, and Michel brought so many of the pivotal events to life. History is his passion and he was skilled and charming at sharing it. Our teenage sons really enjoyed the tour. Fascinating, Michel’s own family history as a 10th generation Quebecquois, was woven into the complex and rich history of French America. This is a superb way of getting a 101 on why Quebec is such a key part of Canadian history, and the broader picture of North American colonialism. Highly recommended, hands-on from someone who knows chapter and verse of local history and loves sharing his knowledge of this special place. Thankyou Michel.

Michel led a fantastic walking tour. Made Old Québec so much more meaningful than just wandering around the touristy areas and looking in souvenir shops. We did the 400 years of history tour, and we learned so much about American and Canadian history. Highly recommend Michel for “not your average tourist.”

Thank you Wendy. It's always a pleasure to welcome Bostonian's and talk about the 400 years of History that Canadians share with the Americans. No taxation without representation.... No Qc City tour without Michel ! :)

Michel Sirois's knowledge of the history of Quebec and its place in Canada was enlightening and entertaining. As a Canadian I think I learned more in our 3 hour tour of Quebec than I did in high school. Michel's charts and maps helped us understand and visualize everything that was in front of us. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody wanting to understand Quebec and its unique place within Canada.
